FPL points projections: Salah and De Bruyne lead the way in Double Gameweek 36

Our Fantasy Premier League (FPL) points projections for Gameweeks 36-38 are available to read for Premium Members of Fantasy Football Scout.

These have been freshly updated after Friday’s press conferences to take into account any injuries and rotation risks.

With two matches in Gameweek 36 and a rest already out of the way last weekend, it’s little surprise to see Mohamed Salah (£13.3m) topping the list of projected scores for the week.

As for the premium battle elsewhere, it’s Kevin De Bruyne (£11.9m) – another to have warmed the bench in Gameweek 35 – who leads the way, with the Tottenham Hotspur duo of Son Heung-min (£11.0m) and Harry Kane (£12.4m) further down the list.

Subscribers can see the players heading the points projections tables for both this upcoming Gameweek and the following two in the images below but you can get the full picture by clicking here.

You can even get a breakdown of the points, from attacking returns to clean sheets, by clicking here.

Our Rate My Team tool, meanwhile, can give you an approximation of how many FPL points your own team will score over a series of Gameweeks. We’ve more details on this below.

GAMEWEEK 36: FPL POINTS PROJECTIONS

GAMEWEEKS 36-38: FPL POINTS PROJECTIONS

WHAT IS RATE MY TEAM?

Rate my Team (RMT) is a tool designed to give you an approximation of how many FPL points your team will score over a series of Gameweeks. This takes into account captaincy, vice-captains and automatic substitution points.

WHAT ARE PROJECTIONS?

Projections come in two forms – Season Projections and Six-Gameweek Projections (SGP).

Season projections show algorithm-generated predictions for every FPL player. This includes goals, assists, clean sheets, minutes played, bonus points, yellow cards and, most importantly, FPL points.

SGP shows algorithm-generated predictions for every player’s FPL points in each of the next six Gameweeks, calculating their points per million value over this period. These numbers are the same numbers as the ones used in RMT.

HOW ARE THE VALUES FOR RATE MY TEAM AND PROJECTIONS CALCULATED?

The values are generated by an algorithm that uses both current and historical data. There is also constant human monitoring so that the model can respond quickly to news, injuries or tactical changes that otherwise the algorithm may underestimate.

We do this to generate the best values with as little bias as possible.

HOW DO I LOAD MY TEAM INTO RMT?

To load your team into RMT, you need to type in your FPL ID.

If you can’t find your FPL ID, instructions on how to find it are on the Rate My Team page.

WHAT DO XM AND ADJP MEAN?

Placing the cursor over a player’s predicted FPL points in a Gameweek will show an xM score and an adjP score.

xM stands for expected minutes – It’s the number of minutes the algorithm is predicting a player to have. Note that this isn’t an exact Gameweek specific prediction but rather an average number of minutes. Therefore, while a player might be expected to play 90 minutes, their xM will be lower since there’s a chance they might miss the game or get substituted.

adjP is the expected points – how many points the algorithm predicts a player will score in the week if they were to play 90 minutes.

Both of these values combine to generate a final score.

WHY DOES RMT SAY TO START A PLAYER WITH A LOWER PREDICTED SCORE THAN A SECOND PLAYER?

Usually, this occurs because the algorithm predicts that a player (usually a goalkeeper) will either play the full game or won’t feature at all.

Player A – High adjP, very low xM – Low RMT score

Player B – Medium adjP, very high xM – Medium RMT score

Whilst Player A is unlikely to play, the most common scenarios is that they’ll either be given 90 minutes or none at all. Therefore, RMT thinks it’s worth starting him to make use of the high adjP if he plays, otherwise the safer option of Player B will autosub in.

Therefore it suggests picking Player A over B, despite the former appearing to score lower on RMT. 

WHEN DO UPDATES HAPPEN?

While there’s no fixed update timetable, it is pretty much continuous.

Monday tends to have a big update after the weekend’s events. Thursday and Friday will have updates in the evenings following any news that emerges from pre-match press conferences.

CAN I SEE A FULL LIST FOR ALL PLAYERS IN RMT?

You can find the complete list here. It can also be found by clicking the “Players” option in the sub-menu under “Rate My Team” on the main Premium Members Area menu.

CAN I ORDER BY SCORES FOR ONE GAMEWEEK?

From the list of all players in RMT or projections, just click on the Gameweek header to sort the players by that Gameweek’s predicted score.

HOW DO I CHANGE THE GAMEWEEKS I VIEW RMT OVER?

At the top of the Rate My Team page, whilst you have your team loaded, you can select “First Gameweek” and “Last Gameweek”. By default, the first Gameweek will be the next Gameweek and the last Gameweek will be in six Gameweeks’ time, but these can be manually altered to suit your research.

    Pukki to Nketiah
    A) Yay
    B) Nay

    1. Ospina Colada
      • 5 Years

      Yay if for free.

  2. MoSalalalalalalalalah

    Chasing. Who do I captain? Maybe Richarlison? Could always play it safe and stick it on Salah.

    Ramsdale
    VVD - TAA - Holgate
    Coutinho - Saka - Son - Salah - Mount
    Richarlison - Dennis

    Sánchez - Royal - White - Mateta

    1. Biggsy

      If you're chasing someone specifically then it's a good time to put it on someone they won't

  3. Ruinenlust
    • 4 Years

    Who’s more nailed: Laporte or Dias???

    1. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Toss a coin. Only Pep truly knows

    2. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      both should be okay considering Stones is out

    3. chilli con kone
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Dias for me. Ake is a left sided cb. No direct replacement for Dias

  4. Ospina Colada
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Who should I drop to the bench:

    A) Werner
    B) Barnes
    C) Kulu

    Thinking B but feels wrong with his fixtures.

    1. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I think B. Has fixtures but not form or security of starts

      1. Ospina Colada
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Thank you

  5. Biggsy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Schmeichel, Foster
    Trent, James, Laporte, Cancelo, White*
    Salah, Saka, Martinelli, Coutinho, Gordon
    Kane, Richarlison, Broja*

    BB good to go?

    Or take a hit for Broja? White? Or both?

  6. jackruet

    Foster matip Dennis nketiah

    Good enough to bench boost? 8 extra matches..

    1. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Yes

      1 month, 25 days ago

      Go for it

  7. Kantelele

      You think Robertson will really sit on the bench in Villa/Tottenham game ?

      1. Biggsy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Villa maybe. Doubt Spurs

      2. jason_ni
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        I'm doubtful, they need to keep pushing city.
        But own him, so maybe I'm just being hopeful!

      3. chilli con kone
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        I think he starts both after the midweek sub

    • Kodap

      Morning guys, anything worth a -4 here?

      Schmeichal
      Cancelo (v) - Robbo - Taa - James
      Salah (c) - Son - Kulu - Saka - Cout
      Nketiah

      DDG - Telles - Mateta - Weg

          • 4 Years

          Thanks biggsy

    • The Red Devil
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I know it's high risk. But could have a higher upside in these moves?

      Salah + Ramsey -> Kdb + son (-8)

      1. Biggsy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        For free it could be shrewd. For a hit maybe less so. Certainly wouldn't if you have a FH left (as can get benefit of Son and KDB later)

        1. The Red Devil
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Don't have FH

          1. Biggsy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Then no way

      2. chilli con kone
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Nope that’s crazy you’ve lost your head selling salah in a -8

        1. The Red Devil
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          But getting son & kdb?

          1. chilli con kone
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Salah will be massively captained. You’re betting on him blanking and one of KDB son to get a haul just to cover the hit

    • Abaddon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      A) Jesus, Mahrez, Cancelo
      B) Ricky, KDB, Laporte

      1. chilli con kone

        I'd probably go B on basis of what it allows in 37. Bear in mind the Everton boys will certainly rise before 37 deadline

      Currently on this team all dgw players and I'm playing bench boost. I'm playing my free hit next week so I've got 1 free transfer I may as well use this week. 0.9m in thr bank. Any thoughts on what to do with the free transfer??

      1. The Mentaculus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Cash - Laporte? Coutinho - Diaz/Jota?

    • Bubz

      • 8 Years

      Decided to pull the trigger on Sterling —> KDB -4. You know what that means. The last time I sold Sterling a couple months back he scored a hatty or something 😀

      But now… C Kdb or Salah that is the question…

      1. What am I doing?

      Kane & Jimenez —> Richarlison & KDB (-4) and tripple cap KDB, at 70k rank need something.

      Or just swap jimmy to richa and cap Salah? 🙂

      1. The Mentaculus

      • kellamergh
        • 3 Years

        Which is best?

        A) Coutinho for Kulusevski
        B) James for Matip
        C) Neither

        All are free.
        B frees up a little bit more cash, for when I bring in Son, but isn't imperative.

      • Jet5605

        Any of these worth a -4 hit? Would bench Mateta

        A - Ramsey > Gordon
        B - Schar > Laporte

        Schmeichel
        Cancelo - James - TAA
        KDB - Son - Maddison - Mount - Ramsey
